The Brett Rakuson foursome was on the wrong side of every wick, bump and roll. The Pat Burke boys got all the breaks, and Pat made a couple of stealer shots. In a one sided game, Burke took over top spot in the standings with an 11–3 victory.

In another lopsided game team Kevin Oliver had team Murray Walsh’s number. That number was 8-3. The final score of the match.
